The natural beauty of Isle a la Cache will be enhanced in July as the reserve museum is filled with beautiful works of art produced by members of the Romeoville Art Society.

An exhibition entitled “Art à la Cache – Art dans la nature” will be on display at Isle à la Cache from July 1 to 31 during museum opening hours, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday to Saturday and from noon at 4 p.m. on Sunday. The building is closed on Mondays.

Nineteen artists produced several pieces for the exhibition.

The art society’s traveling miniature art gallery will also be part of “Art à la Cache” after making a first stop at the Pollinator Party program scheduled from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, June 25 at Isle a la Hidden. The Miniature Gallery is a fun and interactive showcase that encourages artists and makers of all ages to create, share and exchange art.

Forest Preserve’s collaboration with the Romeoville Art Society began last year when the group asked if Isle a la Cache could be a host site for the “Art in Your Yard” event, said facilities supervisor Tina Riley. of the museum.

“It opened a line of communication with them,” she said of the 2021 event. “They have many artist members and were eager to put on an art exhibit at the museum. Isle a la Cache has the space and infrastructure to host a show. And we know our visitors will enjoy seeing the art and we hope to meet new visitors through this partnership.

According to its website, the Romeoville Art Society is, “…committed to supporting each other and our community by sharing our creative gifts and helping to build an inclusive and thriving artistic community.”

In addition to the art exhibit, Isle a la Cache is also presenting an “Exhibition on the Life Diversity Interpretive Trail” until October 2. The exhibition is open during reserved hours, from 8 a.m. to sunset, seven days a week. For more information on Isle a la Cache programs, see the calendar of events.
